5998...Map Of Hate

I grabbed this off of and wanted to share it with you.  It was put together by students at Cali's Humboldt University.  They went through 150,000 Tweets to put together a map of hate.  "The data that forms the map comes from an analysis of every tweet posted between June 2012 and April 2013 that contained at least one of 10 designated 'hate words,' including dyke, fag, chink, gook, wetback, and cripple."

Twitter ‘Hate Map’ shows where racist, homophobic, and offensive tweets originate

Not a whole lot west of the Manitoba/Ontario border.  It would be cool/frightening to see a Canadian map reflecting the way people hate.
